, raise taxes on the middle cls, pti social security. and krystal is right, romney had to move far to the right but having watched that tape, that's where is he comfortable. that's the best and easiest performance that i've seen him give. of course, his worst peormae, i ink le h fed out. i think the ryan pick helped him figure it out. we still have the debates, the romney campaign inexplicably is raising their expectations. it's not really inexplicable. the's a reason for it. they've got a lotf win supporters and some of the super pacs they've got to say just wait for those debates on october 3rd. >> krystal, wanted to cut mr. romney someslack. to be fair, the area that he is up is until budget deficit and he's winning in the polls 4%. it's the only area that he beats the president 4% in terms of the deficit. but before you celebrate that -- >> i'm crating t >> -- the bloomberg poll finds that 50% of americans view him unfavorably. 50%. that's the worst september rating for a presidential challenger in three decades of the poll. the worst. d u'veot republicans saying, just wait for th

middle east or mitt romney's position of peaceable strength and leadership can leave america better off. >> let me explain this both to you. president clinton is about to reveal what he to say about it. a really big story in new york. nothing to do with the cgi, u.n., or anything else. all about the nfl match. president obama weighed in on twitter. nfl fans on both sides hope the nf lockout will end soon. >> it was a close call. i think the rules state if you have dual possession in the end zone, the offensive team wins, so i -- i really think it was a tough call, and a scramble there, but i think the referees got it right. >> wow. controversial position, mr. crowley. >> i also think president clinton got it right when he said america is going to win the ryder cup. >> you will be interested to see what president clinton says about the nfl matchup. but on the ryder cup, you are both wrong. what do you think? >> i played college football. i'm old fashioned. i think the players should decide, not the referees, and if you have referees, you should have the best professionals. chairman r

regularity. i understand in the middle of a campaign what he's going through. >> going back to romney. every move he makes on foreign policy will be calculated because he knows he's in a tough position. so in a speech he gave today he will be very vague. he's not going to give a lot of the specifics. his neocon policies as they say all of the people surrounding him giving him advice, he won't speak to those on a day like today, i don't think. >> the question is has romney's attacks on the national security record had an impact? the most polls i saw still show obama polling in the 60% of people who trust obama in security. i don't think what's happening in libya, though it is horrible and disturbing as it is, it is going to have that big of an impact come november. >> eliot: i could not agree more. mitt romney speaks about foreign policy. he will get thin slivers of certain groups. he may pick up a few conservative jewish voters based upon the failure of the president to meet with netanyahu. overall arc and argument for the campaign fails. every day he doesn't speak about the economy h

leads, this is really bad. when you see polls showing you're not connecting with the middle class, that's really bad. when you have basically, again, a little less than six weeks to make your case, the romney campaign is about as terrible a position you can imagine. >> obviously you could imagine polls worse. but having said that, john, i'm not sure he even has six weeks. early voting starts next tuesday in ohio, as well as nebraska. i think it's already under way in idaho, vermont, iowa. wyoming. how does that change the campaign strategy? >> first i think you have to point out in almost every single poll obama is under 50% or at which is warning to the president. he'll pick up very few undecided votes. the ads were information for your own party. the debates are going to start to pay attention and that happens right when early voting starts. so i would suggest that these debates are critical for mitt romney. and, frankly, i think that -- you know, you can say he's not connecting with the middle class. well, obama you could make the argument, hurt the middle class, and think that
